David Blake’s Favorites

Wednesday, March 9, 2011


Trainer/Rider David Blake
Helmet: International Riding Helmets - irhhelmets.com just started sponsoring me. They just sent me all brand new helmets, which really are the most comfortable I've ever ridden in. I decided to wear one every ride, even in the show ring. It's time. Stay tuned as we will be updating our photos with me wearing a helmet.
Saddle: Custom Saddlery has sponsored me for years now.

Other Favorites
I ride in Pikeur breeches. I'm not sponsored in them but would to be.... wink wink.
Horse feed: Just started using Cavalor, love it.
Supplement: I’m not much of a supplement guy. Cavalor has a lot of the nutrients you need already in it.
Car you drive: Black Prius
Truck you Drive: Ford F450, my wife and I joke that we need a bumper sticker that reads “my other car is a hybrid, sorry.” Movie: Good Fellas.
Book(s): Kafka: The Trial & Naked Lunch by Williams Burroughs.
Saying you live by? Work hard play hard, although I tend to fall asleep at 7:30...
Vacation: Tahiti
Restaurant: Burger King (I know, picture of an athlete). No really, I do love good food. Best meal I’ve had lately was at Pamplemousse Grill in Del Mar, CA.
Fun thing to do besides riding: I try and surf everyday after work if I can. It’s a great way to unwind my day while still exercising. My wife, the “surf widow,” not that much of a fan.
Hobbies/Collections: I’m a movie buff, I guess. I travel so much for clinics, I’ve watched about 2-3 movies a weekend for the last 10 years.
